Regulation of gene expression by hypoxia: integration of the HIF-transduced hypoxic signal at the hypoxia-responsive element.


Cells experiencing lowered O(2) levels (hypoxia) undergo a variety of biological responses in order to adapt to these unfavorable conditions. The master switch, orchestrating the cellular response to low O(2) levels, is the transcription factor, termed hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF). The alpha subunits of HIF are regulated by 2-oxoglutarate-dependent… (More)
